      I have been asked by collectors if i want to sell it, even had a local brewery that has a museum of local old companies interested in it

      If that's the case I would install it at home, keep it nice and hopefully it will pay for your kids college someday. (if you have kids)

      yeah. I hope you are kidding..

      STOP QUOTING THE SAME GODDAMN POST 100 TIMES. Seriously, there is enough EPIC fail to fill the thread without giving one fail too much attention.

      OTTI: shut up, your car is cool even with the underbite and oversized wheels, it's not epic fail.

      THIS IS EPIC FAIL:

      1% defined: Lone wolf, no club. Duct tape it yourself. It is broken down 1% of the time, and work is always 1% completed.
      2% defined: I'm too old to drive broken sh*t and VW people are cool. DBVW!

      I'm keith and I'm admitting the rabbit with the beach ball is mine. the ball was me and mu ftiend having fun saying what's something rediculous you can.carry to dubs in the sand. and figured a giant beach ball would be fun. i find it funny that you're so offended by it. and is it as.cliche as everyother rabbit having bbs.rs.

      keep hating all you want and ill keep having fun with my car. Sorry it bothers you so much to sign on and make a thread about it. cheers .

      The sentence did have bad grammar. but the rusty car isn't mine

      I wasn't referring to the car, but I guess I'll give it a stab too.

      1) Mounting wheels backwards to get a really low offset is geniously stupid.
      2) Lowering it to a point of damaging components on an antique car is...well... go get a honda
      3) Rust spreads, and trendy people don't clean.
